Many people don’t realize how out of shape they are till they finally get in a gym and do some exercises. That holds especially true for anyone working with a trainer like myself. There are many aspects that are important in getting a proper exercise program. I think the most important thing when you first start off, is making sure any previous injuries are addressed. This means taking the time to properly stretch and strengthen the necessary muscles.
If this isn’t done, chances of re-injury or new injuries can occur. Just going into the gym and putting it on the highest amount possible and trying to lift will do more harm then anything else. Proper alignment of muscles is key to gaining good long term results. This goes for anyone looking to lose weight, gain muscles, or anything in between.
Instant gratification does no good in any program, so make sure you’re on the right fitness track.
